It’s a simple formula, really:
You inherently know that scrapping your butt out of that office chair or off of that sofa and scooting outside — on occasion — is good for you. Why else would your mom and dad always tell you to go outside and play?!
And perhaps you’re in the know about delta-8-THC and how it might be a gummy-shaped blessing for your smattering of wellness concerns. (If not, we’ll be circling back to this in a min.)
Now imagine teaming these two gifts from Mother Earth working together. Uh-huh. There’s that spark of recognition — you’re envisioning how this lovely combo is elevating your experience of both the natural world and the D8.
We want you to see the forest for the trees, so let’s get into this! We’ll trek into the wilds of:
So, separately, time spent outside and cannabis offer plenty of possible boosts to your physical and mental well-being. Together they have the potential to be diabolically good for you!
Let’s see what merits each has in its own right first. Then we’ll explore them as a pair.
There’s a ton of research and data proving that ditching the confines of the indoors is a boon to your mind and body. (In fact, this is so well studied that there’s a field of psychology called ecopsychology that focuses on the emotional connections between humans and the Earth!)
Delta-8’s no slouch either. Though there’s not a huge amount of research attesting to the benefits of D8, the data is starting to roll in. Plus, there’s a lot we can glean from the available info on cannabinoids and cannabis in general as well as THC (i.e., the delta-9 variety).
Here are some reported perks one might notice from D8:(4)

Delta-8 and nature go hand in hand, like a buddy system of goodness for your whole being. When combined within responsible and healthful ways, the two elements can be synergistic.
It’s like a PB&J. A peanut butter sandwich is OK. And jelly may be your jam. But put them together and it can be otherworldly!
Are you rearing to go, to get away from the madding crowd for some R&R with Mama Earth?
Here are some of our top ideas for things to do — things that can be safely enjoyed year-round with or without delta-8-THC as one of your companions. (Because you want those who aren’t consuming D8 to have loads of fun in sea and sun, too. Aww, you’re so considerate!)
Everyone loves a jovial fresh-air meal! If you’re going to be the day’s grillmaster, just make sure that your partaking of delta-8 doesn’t impair your ability to safely handling fire.
D8 and outdoor settings were made to be paired with movement and mindfulness practices. That’s why they go so well with all styles of yoga and meditation. Let your flows be flowier and your centering be more centered!
Or, maybe snowshoeing if it’s snowy and wintry. Or simply a stroll if you want a more low-key endeavor. As long as you have sure footing, going on your version of a walk in the park could be a golden time to enjoy some delta-8-THC.
No, this isn’t going into the woods and taking a dip in a tub. At its most basic, this is taking a purposeful-but-leisurely foray into a natural space and kind of just tuning into and absorbing your surroundings. It’s an all-immersive sensory experience with lots of documented benefits.(5) Delta-8 could facilitate the experience.
Anything from a satisfying streak of solitaire to a rousing round of Red Rover to a badminton battle is fair game (as long as you can do it safely!). Possibly best to leave the lawn darts and caber tossing for another day, though.
Maybe you want an extended period of time away from the interior of your home or office. We get it! Pitching a tent and cozying up to a campfire might be your thing. With a bit of delta-8-THC, it may be even more rewarding.
If you’re so inclined (or reclined) — and can do so safely and legally — delta-8 and nature could really give your sexual encounter a leg up, so to speak. A little outdoor action could deepen intimacy, rekindle imagination, or add a new dimension of fun to your relationship.
It can be as simple as gathering your peeps and casting a movie, cartoons, family videos onto a screen, sheet, wall. Cuddling up with someone special and watching your flick on a tablet works, too! Either way, D8 can earn your cinematic evening two thumbs up.
Sound is music to your soul! Attending an outdoor concert is an awesome way to spend time with Mother Nature. Especially if the venue is one of those cool outside amphitheaters. Now imagine D8 opening you up even more to the vibrations your favorite metal band or symphony is emitting….
How about cultivating your small piece of land while cultivating some good feels with delta-8? Working on your plant beds or in your veggie/flower patch offers a bounty of wellness wins. And dirt + D8 may grow even better results.
The only thing that might top laying on your back and looking at the sky (assuming it’s not raining…) is adding delta-8-THC into the program. You can examine the patterns made by tree branches overlapping the blue heavens during the day. At night, you can trace the trails of falling stars and the outlines of constellations.
Duhn nuh nuh nuh – it’s hammock time! Who says your activity has to be active? Sitting on a piece of driftwood at the beach and spacing out or curling up with a good book on your porch swing are legit, too! And D8 might level up those pastimes for you.
You invest a lot of time, money, and effort into your outdoor exploits and your cannabis. So, let’s make sure you make the most of your surf-and-turf time and delta-8!
Sensible and responsible use of delta-8 is a must. It’s a mildly psychoactive substance that can affect each person differently. As such, start low and slow.
Once you know how your body responds to it, you’ll have a better idea of the types and level of activity that are suitable for you to do while consuming D8. Then just plan accordingly.
At any rate, here are some cautions we feel are worth calling out if anyone in your party is using delta-8:
Life’s too short and precious to use junky products. You’re worth only the best delta-8 goods. So, how do you know you’re getting the primo stuff:
Paving your primrose path with D8 could be a natural way to elevate your time outdoors. Both delta-8-THC and nature offer a breadth of potential benefits.
So, go ahead – answer the call of the wild! And bring some delta-8 along for an even more exhilarating, satisfying response.
